not just a new two-year session, but a real historical moment in sacramento with two-thirds democrats, as well as a democratic governor. it's an opportunity that the majority party is mindful of not squandering and with regards to initiatives that we'll see this year, i think the vlf is something that is being talked about as another opportunity for transportation funding at the state level, something that previous administrations have not wanted to look at in terms of bringing that state vehicle license fee back up to historical levels. if that happens, i think we in san francisco have to be mindful that we uniquely already have that authority and to the extent that the state chooses to embrace that authority, where do we stand? since conversations are underway in san francisco about how to spend our own vlf, i think we need to take a strategic, somewhat defensive position to make sure that we don't lose that to the state's interest, valid as it is, to invest at the state level. the governor released his budget, which most of you know, just recently. it's pretty good for transportati
'dell, of venturebeat.com. as well as john myers, kxtv political editor joining us from sacramento. governor jerry brown struck a confident tone on thursday, applauding lawmakers and voters for making tough decisions to balance california's budget. he also pushed for his priorities including education and regulatory reform. now, john, how would you rate his speech and what left the biggest impressions on you? >> well, you know, rating the speech, a speech from jerry brown is really tough to do because it's unlike any other speech you get from any other governor. how many governors go from the book of genesis to "the little engine that could" in one 25-minute speech? this was a vintage jerry brown speech. i think really what you saw here was a little bit of the governor running a victory lap. proposition 30 passed. temporary taxes passed. the budget looks a lot better. i think this was the governor's chance to pivot, to pivot to talking about what makes california great, how we get them back on track. don't worry, we're getting there. so i took this as a real optimistic speech with a lot of details, a lo
at school. he was a victim of bullying in sacramento, california. these kinds of summits are interesting it me because i'm boots on the ground. i am in the trenches every single day and i live in sacramento so i'm at the capitol and we use the word bullying which softens the behavior. this is abuse. it is peer abuse. and our children are crying for help. and the adults who are charged with their well-being turn a blind and deaf ear to it and here's my comment. there are no consequences for failure to comply. nothing with teeth. and i have a dead child who broke under horrendous circumstances where in one of the best schools in sacramento, meraloma, breaks every record going. it is the best. and my son was perceived to be gay and the idea that you could scream out every horrendous word in front of god and everyone and no one did anything, and michael followed policy to a t tomorrow is his birthday. i should be celebrating his 21st birthday. instead, my husband and i, we mourn 4 years. we are no further along. none of our laws, they are not working. this is great. but as a par
and we decided that we would call it seth's law in honor of her, she had been in and around sacramento for a long time. so the legislation in and of itself, i don't think it's going to work miracles, but it is definitely on people's radar now and i think you hear it in the media more and more. the reason we have a suicide barrier and the reason we are having legislation like this is because of the parents and the families because they are the ones that hurt the most and i would imagine part of the therapeutic thing, you've got to tell this story and telling it in the right place and the right time can be very effective. so seth's law does require that if you witness an act of bullying, that you must report it. >> is that for anybody? >> anyone, but particularly teachers. there is a -- sometimes we see things that aren't very pleasant and if you've ever taken it to muni, you know what i mean. your tendency is to turn away. i heard the word faggot on the play ground when i taught. the teachers were intimidated, they didn't want to be seen to have any empathy because that might refle
valley and the national weather center for sacramento has issued a dense fog advisory for the delta and sacramento. by fairfield, further east, you may run into dense fog out there, so be careful. 50 at half moon bay, low 50's at los gatos and upper 50's in santa cruz and 50's in watsonville. the visibility is not great in livermore or santa rosa but improving in napa. novato is up to ten miles. you are half a mile just an hour ago. you will see it is improving around the airport and hayward. san jose has clouds at eight miles visibility. with the cooler air and the trough that is swinging through, we had another system that went through earlier, and numbers are cooler especially at coast, nine degrees cooler this morning with five degrees cooler in livermore, so there is milder mornings are a thing of the past going tomorrow morning where it will be much, much cooler. areas of fog still this morning mainly in our east bay, turning cooler with breezy northwest winds along the shoreline and a cool dry pattern into next week as we begin february with no rain, at all, right on through
sacramento street and 303 south sacramento street did not receive notice of the permit. and they sort of tried to distinguish between the notice of the permit and the notice of an appeal and i think those are two very separate issues. the public works code says that businesses within a 300' radius are entitled to receive notice of the permit. what is the use of giving a notice of appeal after everything is said and done? the second issue is i believe due to radius services mistake, the whole block was missed floatfication area and that is because radio services calculates notice the block using the assessor's block as opposed to what is stated in the public works code, which is the mid-point of the block face. can i just go to this overhead real quickly? okay. so where the x is where expresso subito did the 300' radius, but where the little star is the actual block face. so all the businesses down here were not notified and one business that dpw testified to was 101 2nd street and no one from that building received notice. the second point is that dpw testified if starbucks objec
to be - it's now on the agenda of the local body for this month that it is not well managed from sacramento. i heard what the board wanted to do was they would be sued by the developmenter. people in our neighborhood were threatened with subpoenas that were so what we have here is a process that we can't allow to be the normal thing. i was actually threatened by the lawyer from the church and the church was going to sue me. now, of course, that didn't represent what the church had in mind. i can tell you that diane 92 son will be meeting with them. i'll have to come back and talk more about this >> further comments? sue i would like to second the request from the local sierra club that when you get to item 12 the certification of the e i r you'll not hold it over for two weeks. the documents are available for 2 weeks in advance. i further ask that the staff do a much better presentation on the role of the concourse for gatherings in the city. if you will go to the back thought i example you will find a lot of the issues listed here >> i go to the craft fair and i alerted them, they were a
it doesn't matter. it just doesn't work that way. and this isn't just about getting 301 sacramento and 303 sacramento wrong. it's bigger than that. radio services just extrude up royally. and i'm going back to my map. radius services determined the midpoint of the assessor's block when the law is the midpoint of the block face. and within the public works code, it distinguishes between a block face and an assessor's block. "assessor's block" is perhaps could be three-block faces as in this case. and it's used multiple times in the public works code. amid the block face where the star is. and all of these businesses did not receive notice. so dpw testified a couple of months ago that 101 2nd street is within a 300' radius. i want to ask dpw did anyone at 101 2nd street receive notice? if they did not, notice was not served properly. the second point is the 300' radius. the ordinance use the word "radius." the order itself says there are no like foods within a 300' radius. radius is the proper measurement and dpw is going to get up here and say oh, no, we're going use walking distance and

was on the prowl in the blue oak ranch reserve. over in sacramento, lawmakers are considering a bill that aims to keep the big cats alive when they are captured. >> the bill requires wardens to pursue nonlethal options when humans are not at risk. >> the bill would allow the department of fish and game to rescue injured and or fan mountain lions and get them rehabilitated and relocated. current state laws here in california make rehabilitation of the big cats illegal. >>> well five years after the financial collapse, money is flooding back into the stock market in a big way. the s & p 500 finished above 1500 today for the first time since december, 2007, and the dow, which hit its all-time high that october is closing back in on the 14,000 mark. the 8th straight day of gains is wahl street's longest winning streak since, get this, november 2004. apple probably wishes that it was going along for the ride. it is not. its stock has been sliding. after wednesday's earnings report, the company is no longer the most valuable in the world. as of today's closing bell, that company is exxon. >>> and
